With the added features and visual tweaks, the new Maruti Suzuki XL6 looks more like a distinguished product compared to the Ertiga. Available as a petrol-only model, the new XL6 is now available in three variants – Zeta, Alpha and Alpha+, with all three variants being offered with manual and automatic versions.
